This directory contains data, code and charts behind the story The Rise Of Religiously Inspired Terrorism In France.

The data source is the Global Terrorism Database (GTD). Raw data files from the GTD were retrieved on November 13, 2015; however, the raw data can not be made public. The data is freely available at the GTD website. Please see the GTD codebook -- the file GTD_Codebook_2015Final.pdf -- for more information.

Note: incident-level data for the year 1993 does not exist in the GTD database. However, in appendenix II of the codebook, GTD provides country-level summary statistics for that year; that data is included in the file country_stats_1993_appendix2.csv.

The FiveThirtyEight analysis is contained in the following files:
